Stated by sock manufacturer, Heel Tread: For those who take leg coverage to a higher level, these socks are made to be worn pulled up just below the knee. Whether you're someone who takes naked flesh exposure very seriously or you like to really flash your new socks or both, these socks are perfectly suitable to be worn all year round.
The car that invented the hot hatch set a pretty high bar for all that came after it.
But its birth wasn't easy...
The prototype was based on a Scirocco, with an EA827 engine with dual carburetors and a lowered and stiffened suspension. When Volkswagen's Chief of Research drove this prototype, he objected to the harsh suspension and excessive noise from the intake system and declared the car "undrivable". Nevertheless, the VW Golf GTI team persevered and ended up assembling an exceptional automobile.
Gunhild Liljequist was tasked with creating a set of features that would set the GTI's interior apart from the standard Golf. Her contributions became car interior design legends: the bright Tartan plaid upholstery and the dimpled golf-ball-like gearshift knob, making this sock design sort of a no-brainer for us.
